Thinking of employing someone in Brazil? As with every other country, certain costs are associated with employing a worker that come on top of the gross salary that you are offering. For Brazil, those taxes include social insurance, pension and work accident insurance.
In Brazil, employees pay several taxes, which are deducted from their gross salary by their employers. The income tax is progressive and determined by the salary, while the social security is between 7.5% and 14%.
